Installation for Infinite Games
A telescope inside the fourth-floor apartment at OHC is trained on a distant rooftop. There, visible only through the telescope, is a construction made from discarded CPS furniture. The piece offers a view separated by distance but collapsed by optics, focused on a tiny point in the complex urban cityscape.
